New York Housing Connects with NYC-based Mouse, ‘Housing Mouse’ to Help with Homelessness

About

New York-based mouse startup Mouse, which offers affordable mouse keyboards for homeless people, announced on Tuesday that it is partnering with the city of New York to expand the program and provide additional keyboards for those who need them.

The program, called Housing Mouse, has been offered to the homeless for nearly a year and is designed to provide the most affordable mouse keyboard available in New York City.

In addition to providing mice for the homeless, the program offers a mouse pad, a mouse tablet, and a mouse keyboard to homeless people in need of the assistance.

“Our goal is to make Housing Mouse available to more people in New Yorkers who are homeless and in need, and we are excited to partner with the City of New Yorkers in this effort,” Mouse co-founder and CEO Jaron Lanier said in a statement.

The mouse is not a “one size fits all” solution.

The mice are designed to fit the needs of individuals and families, as well as those who are disabled, elderly, or disabled in a home environment.

For instance, a “single” mouse pad might fit a disabled person, while a larger, three-pad mouse pad may not be appropriate for someone with a mobility disability.

In order to expand this program to those who do not have access to a home or a specific apartment, Mouse will offer a $35 mouse pad to anyone who needs it.

The program is currently available to those with incomes between 100 and 250 percent of the federal poverty level, which is $19,660 for a single person, $28,890 for a family of four, and $33,680 for a household of three.

Lanier said the mouse pad is designed so that it can be used on a variety of surfaces, such as carpets, floors, and walls.

For those with disabilities, the mousepad can be placed on a chair or in a wheelchair, and for people with disabilities who have no access to wheelchairs, the keyboard is an excellent option.

“Mouse has already served many people with chronic illness who have asked for the mouse,” Lanier added.

“We are thrilled to partner again with New York’s City Council and Mayor de Blasio to offer a mouse solution to the City’s homeless.”

Mouse has launched a new webinar, “The Best Mouse Pad for Homeless People,” which will offer more information about Mouse’s mouse pad and the benefits of using one.

A portion of the proceeds from the webinar will be donated to the National Alliance for the Homeless, according to a press release from the Mouse team.

The company also announced that Mouse will be giving away a mouse to anyone with an income between 100 percent of federal poverty levels, $19.660 for single persons, and between $28.890 and $34.680 for family of three, as part of the program.

Mouse will also be offering free mouse pads to anyone in need who has purchased a mouse for at least a month, and the company will be sending out free mouse patches for anyone who wants to use a mousepad in a homeless shelter.

Mouse’s goal is that the mouse program will be an opportunity for people to access their own mouse and keyboard, which they can use to access the internet and other services.

In the first month, Mouse is hoping to offer at least 10,000 mice to people, Lanier told The Verge.

Mouse currently offers mice to those at risk for homelessness, and it will continue to work on expanding the program to include the homeless.

“We’re very excited about how this will work,” Lanieresaid.

“The mouse program is not for everyone.

It’s for people who need it most, who can’t afford it.

We know that the mice are going to be the first step for the Mouse community to be able to have the most effective tool they can get.”
